“Steve was exceptional! He came highly recommended to me by my friends who had him as their realtor. Both as a buyer and as a seller. After discussions with them, I knew that he was the one who I would reach out to. With great patience, he guided me through the whole process and calmed me down when it felt stressful. I couldn’t get over how organized he was, and how helpful all his checklists were that he forwarded to me. Especially for a 1st time seller. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Steve!!! He’s honest and if you’re his client, he looks out for your best interests. Thanks Steve!” – Cathy B. Charlottetown, PE

EXIT Realty Corp. International, a full-service real estate franchisor, opened for business in Toronto, Canada on September 3, 1996, and in record time expanded across North America. Steve Yoston and Carol O’Hanley purchased the franchise rights for Prince Edward Island in September 2015. The EXIT values and beliefs, as well as the EXIT formula, attracted them to the brand.
Steve Yoston started his career with EXIT in 2000 and credits much of his success to the high-quality training and focus on personal development that he was exposed to as a new salesperson with the brand. He is now focused on providing that same high-quality training to the salespeople and staff at EXIT Realty PEI so they can provide an excellent client experience to those they serve.
Steve Yoston and Carol O’Hanley live in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island with their boys Taylor and Jack and their dog Lennon.
Steve was fantastic to work with. He was always willing to help us, he was super informative about the buying process and the market we were trying to purchase in and he provided great analytical information about each property that we viewed. He always listened carefully to our needs and responded promptly and appropriately. Steve took us through the process of buying step by step with crystal clear instruction and he also helped us with extra services we needed like contacts to mortgage brokers, insurance agents, etc. As new Islanders, this help was needed and so very much appreciated. He was consistently responsive to any request or questions we had and we truly sensed that he was our ally in finding the right home for us. Steve actually made the whole process fun for us and we cannot say enough good things about him and our experience.Karen B. & Sean B.

We just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased we were with the service we received from Steve Yoston in the recent purchase of our home. Steve is very knowledgeable and professional. Steve supported us all the way and provided sound advice. His ability to communicate with us about the purchase of our home when we were out of province was outstanding. Steve also stood by us and supported us after the sale of our house when we had a few problems after closing. We highly recommend Steve and Exit to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home.Lorna M. and Ken G.

A big thank-you to Steve Yoston for the invaluable assistance he provided in the sale of my mother’s house. His contribution went far beyond his knowledge of the market and the attention to detail that you expect from any experienced professional. What makes Steve stand out is the warmth and humanity he brings to his work. He understands the personal impact such a major life decision as the sale of a family home can have on people. He balances the practical demands of the business transaction with a sensitivity to the needs of the individuals involved. And he gets the job done. Steve is a skilled realtor and a great person. Thanks again, Steve!P. Campbell
Steve Yoston and Exit Realty recently helped me sell my house in Charlottetown. Steve’s expert advice made it a much easier process than it might otherwise have been. Not only did Steve guide me through the standard intricacies of the sale, he also dealt calmly and cheerfully — and successfully — with some potentially deal-breaking last-minute complications. I couldn’t have made a better choice in a realtor than Steve Yoston.J. Ford
I had to sell my home in Charlottetown while living in the United Kingdom and Steve made the process extremely simple even while being in another country. He is very knowledgeable of the Charlottetown real estate market and is a friendly person to work with. He made the process very easy for me and my house sold fairly quickly. I follow real estate in PEI and I know he gets lots of listings so he must have good knowledge of the market. Very easy process, I didn’t have to do much and what I did have to do was straightforward.Perry L.
This was my third time in 11 years hiring Steve to buy/sell a house. Steve brings a wealth of experience and expertise but his relaxed, no pressure attitude also makes the experience much less stressful. Even when a few things, beyond our control, didn’t go our way he kept us positive and in the end we wound up with our dream home. I don’t expect we will ever need to move again, but if we do, we’ll be calling Steve.Andrew D.

Steve has helped me with multiple real estate transactions over the last few years. I have both listed and purchased homes with Steve and he is a perfect example of what you should get when you think of a REALTOR. He was always on time, prepared, honest and always looked out for our best interests. Communication was always quick and detailed, through every step of negotiation, and he made the process a lot easier. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.Kenneth & Catherine Fisher
From the day Steve first met with us, we felt that he would move mountains to get our house sold. He kept us well informed and was always reachable to answer our questions and offer referrals and contacts for repairs our house needed. We have such confidence in Steve and Carol that we’ve referred our daughter to them to sell her home!Lois McLean
Over the past year, Steve helped us sell a rental property downtown as well as our own family home in Charlottetown. He also helped us relocate to the country with our young family, where we are loving our new home and outdoor space. Steve was incredibly patient and calm throughout the entire process. He was always honest, and his opinions were informed and balanced. His kindness and professional demeanor both with us personally as well as with our tenants during the sale of our rental property made these stressful times much less difficult for us. He helped us sell our properties in a timely manner and was a patient guide through the lengthy process of finding our new home. By getting to know us and connecting with our values, he helped us stay true to our goals. He never pushed us to compromise for the sake of a sale, and with calm reassurance, helped us to remain committed to waiting for the right home for our family. We are so grateful to have had the privilege to work with Steve and would highly recommend both he and his brokerage!Dave & Nicole Green
Steve was amazing from start to finish. His professionalism throughout the sale of our home as a result of divorce, made a difficult situation much easier.
